Israeli Raid Kills 5

DEIR AZ-ZAHRANI, Lebanon () -- Israeli warplanes bombed guerrilla posts and a house in south Lebanon on Thursday, killing a civilian man, two children and two women and wounding 10 people, security sources said.


The civilian casualties threaten a surge of violence in the south as pro-Iranian Hizbollah leaders have in the past repeatedly vowed to rocket northern Israel if Lebanese civilians were attacked.


The raids, the 27th and 28th into Lebanon this year, were the first since Israel threatened "painful response" last week following guerrilla attacks on Israeli troops in the south.
